Cars talk to the road: Live demonstration at the DLR test track in Berlin
In the future, road vehicles will be able to exchange information about the traffic situation and any potential dangers with each other, both directly and via transmitter and receiver modules at traffic lights, crossroads and other infrastructure facilities. By creating the first universal platform for vehicle-to-infrastructure communication, the European CVIS project (Cooperative Vehicle Infrastructure Systems) provides the basis for a wide variety of applications of this technology of the future. The "Ernst-Ruska-Ufer" test track of the German Aerospace Center (Deutsches Zentrum für Luft- und Raumfahrt; DLR) is the ideal test environment for this project. On 11 December 2008, this future standard for communication between car and street was presented to the public for the first time.
